Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Wiki

In-Game Description

Seed from which healing waters continuously spring forth. Give to Emma to increase the maximum uses of the Healing Gourd.

The twisted gourd of medicinal waters was known throughout Ashina since long ago, but it was the extraordinary healer Dogen and his pupil Emma who discovered the self-replenishing nature of this seed.

  • If Wolf chooses to "obey the iron code" at Owl's request, it won't be possible to give Emma any Seed for the rest of the playthrough nor to reach the last Seed in the Fountainhead Palace.
  • As the final invasion of Ashina Castle and Outskirt by the Central Forces is triggered, General Naomori Kawarada will disappear for the rest of the playthrough. However, the Gourd Seed that he would have dropped will still be available in the Offering Box next to Hanbei for Sen.png 2400 and the Prayer Bead for Sen.png 2200.
